NPK 45 Leafy is a compound fertiliser that is used to promote overall growth and healthier/fuller foliage in crops, garden plants, ornamental plants and house plants.
Nitrogen (N) - 15%
Phosphorous (P) - 15%
Potassium (K) - 15%
What is NPK?
The three main numbers on fertiliser packaging represents the value of the three major macro-nutrients used by plants. They are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K).
Nitrogen (N) – Nitrogen is largely responsible for the growth of leaves on the plant.
Phosphorus (P) – Phosphorus is largely responsible for root growth and flower and fruit development.
Potassium (K) – Potassium is a nutrient that helps the overall functions of the plant perform correctly.
Knowing the NPK values of a fertiliser will help you make an informed decision on which to choose for your plants. If you want to fertiliser flowering plants, it would benefit from a fertiliser with higher Phosphorous values. Alternatively, for leafy plants, you would want more Nitrogen in your fertiliser.
Sprinkle onto soil around plant stems and water immediately. Apply the following amounts once every 2-3 weeks.
- Small Potted Plants - 1/2 to 1 Teaspoon
- Big Potted Plants – 1 to 2 Tablespoons
